    • If you’d like to make an appointment, visit this website and use the zip code 22102 to find the “Tysons Community Vaccination Center”

Most of our students are 12 and older, so 95% of our community could be fully vaccinated before summer — putting us in the range for herd immunity. We know that vaccinations are a personal choice, and we do not require them for campers, but for everyone’s protection, we highly recommend campers arriving to camp fully vaccinated.  By coming this weekend, you will be fully vaccinated (both shots) and fully immunized (plus 2 weeks) on June 19, which is before the first day of camp (June 27)!  Our staff is required to get the vaccine and already has.

Hope to see you Saturday, and we cannot wait to spend the summer with you all!

A transformative experience! My son and daughter have attended Traveling Players programs for many years.  It is the most important activity in both of their lives. The instruction in classical theatre is incomparable.  The outdoor skills and experiences are phenomenal. And the friendships and close, supportive community of kids are priceless.  Go!
